Great course!

Greens had been punched a couple of weeks ago or I would have given the course conditions 5 stars. Customer service very good from checkin, providing range balls, cold bottled water, and well staffed snack bar. Played here many times and we'll be back.

Heat Wave

Played during the Heat Wave of 2022. Fortunately, got a very early tee time, so it wasn't too bad until the last hour.

Course layout is fantastic.

They had jus aerated the greens, so putting wasn't particularly good. but, you could tell that the greens would be really nice once the aeration is complete. Lot's of slopes to the greens.

Greens just aerated 7/20

Fun course. Weekday are better as pace of play on weekends is slow. Greens are normally fast but they were just aerated. Great practice facility, grass tee no matts

Good Condition, Tough Greens

Course is in good shape. Pace of play is just a little slow, I wish walking here wasn't allowed during peak morning hours. Pins were in tough positions, often times on slopes, quite challenging.

Great course, fast greens

This is an attractive and well-maintained course with a variety of vistas. The fairways were wide enough that I didn't lose too many balls. The greens tend to be highly angled and quite fast. The practice area includes a driving range, separate chipping and putting greens, and a sand trap.

Fun but Long Round

Great course but played on Sunday afternoon and took us 5 hours to play 18 holes. Course is in great shape and greens are fast. A lot of tough pin placements that slowed play down (don’t get yourself above hole). Overall 9/10. Will be playing again just maybe at better time.
